I have been here twice, and less than satisfied both times. I have gotten a steak each time, and it's either tough, or over cooked. The building itself seems dark and dingy. I hear others who are delighted by this restaurant but for the money I would still chose jocko's.

This place had the best service and delicious food. We went for dinner and the steaks were cooked to perfection. The had a great selection of beer; which paired well with the steak and vegetables. Will definitely return, I want to try their lunch menu, which also look mouth watering.

Atmosphere leaves a little to be desired, however, beers are cold, cocktails are stiff, steaks are rare when asked for, servers are very nice.

The swiss was recommended to us by a couple we met on vacation here on the California coast. We ordered the fire grilled sweetbread appetizer and the large cut prime rib which we asked to split. The sweet breads were absolutely fabulous crispy on the outside yummy on the inside with a slight smoke flavor. The only drawback was that some of the membranes have not been removed completely so some of the pieces were a bit chewy but we would definitely recommend this dish for anyone who likes sweet breads. Chunks of garlic bread served with the sweet breads were very fresh and delicious.The prime rib was very tasty but not spectacular. We ordered medium rare and or cut was definitely a little more to the rear side. The dinner salad that accompanied the prime rib was very fresh. They split was very generous with the meat and we each got our own potato so it was actually more than we could eat. The Au jus that was served in a small container with the meal was absolutely the best ever.
